The Sporting player who was shot in the head and lived to tell the story

New Sporting Kansas City defensive midfielder Jorge Claros, “The Pitbull,” talks about the day he almost died with a chilling calm. Three years ago in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, he was shot twice while in a car with his wife. One bullet lodged next to his shoulder blade, the other entered the back of his head, millimeters from his brain and death.
